Sunday Fabric Fun

I spent a leisurely Sunday last week with some of my friends from Running with Scissors group taking a class from Kat called My Secret life.  It was amazing to watch Kat intuitively put together an art piece. She went from the first photo to the second one in less than 30 minutes, quickly evaluating choices and cutting out the shapes with a rotary cutter and in the case of some of the smaller pieces or to make a small change using little scissors.
Here are Leann and her sister Jane working hard on their pieces, although Leann seems to be sharing a joke with Barb across the table from her.
 Others in the group have blogged about our day and they can be found here, here, and here.

Foto/Fiber Art Auction

For the past two years I have been participating in the Fiber Art for a Cause, which raises money for breast cancer research through Relay for Life.  This a project is organized by Virgina Spiegel and this year features photographs from a select group of artists, with a bonus fiber package from another select group of artists.  Go here to read about this auction.
